It's not just Serena: how umpire Carlos Ramos has clashed with players

Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches | BellaNaija

It was drama-filled conclusion to a match rich with storylines that will go down as one of the most controversial Grand Slam finals of all time.

At the same event Williams received two violations, men received 86 code violations while women received only 22 in total, reported The Telegraph. Men are responsible for more than 86 per cent of these code violations, as well as just under 80 per cent of verbal-abuse violations.

Ramos is back in the umpire's chair this weekend when Croatia host the United States in a Davis Cup tie in Zadar and USA captain Jim Courier said of the Williams incident: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicized".

Serena Williams has opened up in her first interview since accusing a US Open umpire of sexism, insisting she did not conspire to cheat with her coach. It's illegal to receive coaching from the stands.

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her.

Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching Williams, but said she didn't look at him. As tennis great Martina Navratilova points out, no one should act this way on court, particularly a champion.

"I am good, under the circumstances", Ramos told Portugal's Tribuna Expresso. "It's a delicate situation, but a la carte arbitration does not exist".

For now, Kane is just happy to be back with players he shared such a special time with in Russian Federation over the summer. Southgate said: " He's sat up in the dressing room and talking and seems fairly comfortable ".

The ITF has now given a further indication of support for Ramos, seemingly drawing a line under the saga by appointing him to officiate the Davis Cup semi-final between the United States of America and Croatia in Zadar.

USTA president and CEO Katrina Adams, who defended Williams, was overheard apologizing to Ramos on the sidelines of Thursday's draw ceremony.

Mr Chiu put the blame for the debacle on the umpire, Carlos Ramos.

"I want to do well at the Pan Pacific Open and maybe year-end top five - but I'm not putting pressure on myself".

A number of other individuals and groups have backed Ramos, including the International Tennis Federation. He will be back to work as umpire on Friday in Zadar, Croatia.

Meanwhile, Ramos, the umpire at the centre of the controversy, told the Associated Press he is "just focusing on this tie and working again". "She is doing a awful disservice to women's rights, to the #metoo movement, to gender equality", Caroline Wilson of the Australian Broadcasting Corp. said, adding, "to say she's fighting for women's rights, when what she is, is a bad sport".
